The Supreme Court on Monday quashed a plea challenging the Uttar Pradesh government’s ‘Samajwadi’ pension scheme for the underprivileged.

The three judge bench comprising Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justices DY Chandrachud and SK Kaul said the scheme is meant for the poor and “it is a beautiful one”.

The court was hearing the appeal filed by ‘Hindu Front for Justice’ against the Allahabad High Court order which did not find merit in the plea against the scheme.

As per reports, the scheme provides 25 per cent reservation for minorities which is not permissible under the Constitution.
